  • The Summary tab displays information about the plugin pulled from the descriptor file, whether it requires a dedicated code environment (and the ability to set that code environment), and a list of components in the plugin.
  • The Settings tab allows you to specify pre-set parameters for the plugin, if they are used by the plugin.
  • The Usages tab allows you find all projects that use the plugin, to help you determine whether it’s safe to remove a plugin.

Note

Plugins cannot be uninstalled without altering the data directory. If you must uninstall a plugin, be sure that the plugin is no longer being used on the instance, then delete the DATA_DIR/plugins/installed/name-of-a-plugin directory.

If the plugin was installed from the store, and you need to modify it in order add or change some functionality that you need, you can convert it to a development plugin. However, best practice is to clone a plugin from a Git repository and share the changes so that the entire plugin developer community can benefit.
